"Which SDHC card for D5000? " Wed 13-Apr-11 10:08 AM by EddyViper
I've read a lot of messages about SDHC for D5000. As I understand - Class 10 is needed for the guys that make movies and for those who take pictures on RAW it's enough Class 6 (15MB/s). Mainly I use it for shooting planes, high speed, variable distance, sometimes it's very close, so I'd like to have more RAW+JPEG shots in a row (now I have 7).
I shoot RAW+JPEG, now i have stock NIKON SDHC card, and looking forward to LEXAR PLATINUM II 16GB Class 6 15MB/s card. I can't tell prices, because it's different here from worldwide prices. Or maybe I'd better look for Extreme III that cost twice much as LEXAR?
By the way, I had two other cards, Sandisk 1GB Extreme and Kingston 4Gb (I don't remember class). In some time BOTH cards gave me some problems. PC didn't recognise it at all, D5000 showed me message, that I need to format it, but as many times I tried to do it - showed same message. Half of year ago I found similar problem on some forum, but no answers left. Do You know something about it? I'm affraid to buy any other cards so I don't get it broken by D5000, same with LEXAR 16GB..
